Suikoden III Stretches Its Legs on PlayStation 3

Geddoe know

Expecting a typically witty write-up? Sorry, office RPG enthusiast Robert Ramsey is away, which means that it's down to this clueless scribe to compose 100 or so words on Suikoden III.

Man Arrested for Robbery with DualShock 2

Sigh

While we were all getting giddy over The Last Guardian, one Brazilian man was attempting a robbery – with a DualShock 2.

What One Game Do You Always Come Back To?

The one and only

Addiction is a strong word, but that's how many would describe their need to play one single game time and time again. A title that you've never really been able to put down, something that your mind always wanders back to, whether it's because you're bored and unsure of what to play, or because you simply enjoy it so much. It may...

A Very Happy Birthday to You, PlayStation 2

The third place

Seeing as Sony ceased production on the PlayStation 2 a little while ago, we assumed that we were done celebrating the system's birthday, but what the heck – pour one out for the old guy.

What Do You Mean You've Never Played... Rogue Galaxy?

A rogue's legacy

What was then Japanese developer Level-5's biggest ever project, Rogue Galaxy remains a brilliant action role-playing game. A sci-fi tale of adventure, space pirates, and, of course, an evil empire, it's full of memorable characters, boasts a great battle system, and is set across some gorgeously diverse locales. As far as RPG...

You'll Never Guess Who Was Voted Persona 4's Best Character

Scandal

Persona 4's stuffed full of brilliantly written characters, so it's always going to be hard picking a favourite. You might adore idol-on-a-break Rise, or you may think that knucklehead-with-a-heart-of-gold Kanji simply can't be beat, but neither of them have taken the top spot on this fan poll. The vote comes courtesy of the utterly...

Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered Attempts to Get Away with Murder on PC, Mobile Next week

Don't get Cagey

No, we're not going multiplatform – but we have got to cover this. Quantic Dream teased a January announcement late last year, and we immediately assumed that it would have something to do with those PlayStation 4 Trophies for Beyond: Two Souls that leaked eons ago. It turns out, however, that the French firm was alluding to a PC...
